Vail Daily field report: There was only an inch or two of fresh over the hardpack, but the full 3 feet we’ve received in the last week is still available for shredding in many places

Weather: Partly cloudy, snowing on and off

Liftline status: Not bad at all

Run of the day: The Pumphouse is a good one for experts, and Ouzo is the groomer of the day

Breakdown: With another inch or two falling on and off all day at Vail, there’s fresh snow everywhere and the groomers are running soft and nice. And despite all the recent snow, crowds aren’t bad on the open runs.

Snowcast: The National Weather Service says it should snow every day this week
